Sun Damage

Pre-cancers, skin cancers, wrinkles, brown spots, red spots, textural changes and loss of skin elasticity can all result from repeated sun exposure, particularly at altitude. At Teton Dermatology we offer skin screenings as well as a number of treatments and preventative options for sun damaged skin.

Prevention: Sun protection with sunscreen containing Titanium and Zinc oxide such as Teton Dermatolgy SPF 45 daily sunscreen, skin hydration (we like Pure Skin Curative cream with sunflower oil), topical retinoids such as Pure Skin Tri radiant or Refissa and topical vitamin and antioxidant treatments such as Pure Skin Vita CE with Ferulic are the best defense against sun damage.

Rejuvenation: Topical lightening products (such as Kojic acid and hydroquinone), chemical peels and injectable neuromodulators and fillers can be effective in evening out skin tone and wrinkles.

Photodynamic Therapy (PDT): PDT is a light based therapy used in combination with a topical cream called levulan. This combination effectively treats precancerous cells called actinic keratoses that create rough, red areas on the skin.
